The Original Hi Yella Gal

Let's just take a moment to remember Dorothy Dandrige. She played in over 20 films and including Carmen Jones, Lady from Louisiana, Tarzan's Peril. Carmen Jones gross 60k it's first week in 1954. She died at 42 from OD'ing on pills, but will always be remembered for her breakthrough rolls and contributions to the Black Community.
